The complete text of Pakistan Resolution inscribed on Minar-e-Pakistan ..... Please enlarge to read the full text.

Minar-e-Pakistan is one of the most important national monuments of the country. The site of the minaret is the exact place where the historic “Pakistan Resolution” was passed on 23 March 1940, in which Pakistan Muslim League, the single representative political party of all Muslims of the British India, in its historic annual session unanimously demanded the creation of a separate homeland (Pakistan) for the Muslims of Indian sub-continent.

The monument is a blend of Mughal and modern architecture. The base platform of the structure takes the shape of a five point star and is enclosed within crescent shaped pools. At the height of 13 meters the monument is sculpted into flower petals like shape. From this point the minaret tapers as it rises to the overall height of sixty meters. The entire structure is constructed of reinforced concrete and furbished with marble walls and floors. The large public space around the monument called Iqbal Park, in the memory of Dr Allama Iqbal, who first gave the idea of a separate Muslim country for the Muslims of the British India, is commonly used for political and public meetings.
